If necessary, we must update this Privacy Notice in connection with the further development of the Internet and changes in the legal situation and legal precedents. We therefore recommend that you review this page in regular intervals to ensure that you have read the most up-to-date version.
1. GENERAL PROVISIONS
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and the corresponding national data protection laws protect the fundamental rights and freedoms of individuals and their rights to the protection of personal data.
PERSONAL VS NON PERSONAL INFORMATION
Our primary goal in collecting information from you is to provide you with an efficient and helpful experience while using the Website. In order to do so, the Website collects two types of information about you, Personal Information and Non Personal Information. “Personal Information” refers to information that lets us know the specifics as to who you are and which can be used to identify, contact or locate you. We may also collect and use Personal Information to verify your identity when you are making purchases via the Website. Examples of Personal Information include your first name together with your last name, your credit card number, social media accounts, IP addresses, your mailing address and/or email address, and your phone number….etc. Generally, we collect Personal Information when you use the Website to make product purchases, fill out surveys, correspond with us, choose to submit testimonials, stories, photos or the like to the Website, or otherwise volunteer information about yourself. “Non Personal Information” refers to information that does not by itself identify you or a specific individual. Examples of Non Personal Information we may collect include demographic information, which web pages of ours are most often visited and which of our products are either receiving the most purchases or website visits. We may collect Non Personal Information through any of the methods discussed above as well as automatically through use of industry standard technologies discussed further below.
HOW & WHY WE COLLECT DATA FROM YOU.
We collect user data (for example, information provided during registration, ordering, subscribing to newsletters or when contacting us) and technical data (log files; for example, IP addresses, dates, times) from you, provided that this is permitted by law or required as part of contract performance or to preserve our legitimate interests, or you have provided your consent for this purpose.
2. HANDLING PERSONAL DATA FOR WEBSITES FOR PURELY INFORMATIONAL USE
If you use our website purely for informational purposes, in other words if you do not register or if you transfer information to us otherwise, we only collect those personal data that are transferred by your browser to our server. If you would like to view our website, we collect the following data that are technically necessary for us in order to show you our website and guarantee stability and security.
WHAT ARE COOKIES?
COOKIES USED UPON ACCESSING THE WEBSITE
WHAT COOKIES DO WE USE AND WHY ?
Some cookies are necessary to allow you to browse our website, use its features, and access secure areas. The use of these cookies is essential for the website to work. For example, we use user-input cookies for the duration of a session to keep track of a user’s input when filling in forms that span several pages.
We also use functional cookies to remember choices you’ve made or information you’ve provided, such as your username, language, or the region you are in. This allows us to tailor your website experience specifically to your preferences. For example, authentication cookies are functional cookies that are used for the duration of a session (or persistent, if you agree to the “remember me” function) to allow users to authenticate themselves on subsequent visits or to gain access to authorized content across pages. The functional cookies we use include:
- User-centric security cookies to detect authentication abuses for a limited persistent duration, like repeated failed login attempts. These cookies are set for the specific task of increasing the security of the service.
- Multimedia content player session cookies (flash cookies) are used for the duration of a session to store technical data needed to play back video or audio content (e.g. image quality, network link speed, and buffering parameters).
- Load balancing session cookies are used for the duration of the session to identify the same server in the pool in order for the load balancer to redirect user requests appropriately.
- User interface customization persistent cookies are used to store a user’s preference regarding a service across web pages.
POP is dedicated to user experience and we use many tools to help us improve our Website and our commerce platform. To this end, we use reporting and analytics cookies to collect information about how you use our Website or our merchants’ storefronts, and how often. These cookies only gather information for statistical purposes and only use pseudonymous cookie identifiers that do not directly identify you. The performance cookies we use include:
- First party analytics cookies - We use these cookies to estimate the number of unique visitors, to improve our Website and our merchants’ websites, and to detect the most searched for words in search engines that lead to a webpage. These cookies are not used to target you with online marketing. We use these cookies to learn how our websites and our merchants’ websites are performing and make relevant improvements to improve your browsing experience.
- Third party analytics cookies - We also use Google Analytics and other third-party analytics providers listed below to help measure how users interact with our website content. These cookies “remember” what our users have done on previous pages and how they’ve interacted with the website. For more information on Google Analytics, visit Google’s information page. For instructions on how opt out of Google Analytics, see below.
Finally, Social and Content cookies are placed by many social media plugins (for example the Facebook ’like’ button), and other tools meant to provide or improve the content on a website (for example services that allow the playing of video files, or that create comments sections). We integrate these modules into our platform to improve the experience of browsing and interacting with our websites. Please note that some of these third party services place cookies that are also used for things like behavioural advertising, analytics, and/or market research.
Please see https://www.shopify.com/legal/cookies for a representative list of cookies used on the Website.
GOOGLE ANALYTICS AND UNIVERSAL ANALYTICS
Our user analysis may also use Universal Analytics. With this, we can obtain information on the use of our offerings on different devices (“cross devices”). With cookie technology, we use a pseudonymised user ID that contains no personal data and also does not transmit such data to Google. You may object to data collection and storage at any time with effect for the future by deactivating the cross-device user analysis in your customer account. Additional information on Universal Analytics can be found here: SUPPORT.GOOGLE.COM/ANALYTICS/ANSWER/2838718?HL=DE&REF_TOPIC=6010376.
However, in the event that IP anonymization is activated, on this website, your IP address will be shortened in advance by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the entire IP address be passed on to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. IP anonymization is active on this website. By order of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyze and evaluate your use of the website, to put together reports on website activities and to provide services through us related to website and Internet use.
If you do not want any website to record your activities via Google Analytics, you may download and install available browser plug-ins via the following link (TOOLS.GOOGLE.COM/DLPAGE/GAOPTOUT).
Additional information on the terms and conditions of use and data protection can be found at WWW.GOOGLE.COM/ANALYTICS/TERMS/DE.HTML or at WWW.GOOGLE.DE/INTL/DE/POLICIES.
3. HANDLING PERSONAL DATA WHEN USING SOCIAL MEDIA PLUG-INS
Our Website uses social media plug-ins (“plug-ins”) of various social networks provided that you have granted us your consent for this purpose:
USE OF FACEBOOK PLUG-INS (“LIKE” BUTTON)
The plug-ins of the social network Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA, are incorporated into our websites. You recognise the Facebook plug-ins on the Facebook logo (white “f” on the blue tile) or the terms “Like”, “I like” or the “Thumbs up” icon on our website. An overview of the Facebook plug-ins can be found here: DEVELOPERS.FACEBOOK.COM/DOCS/PLUGINS.
If you visit our websites, a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server will be created via the plug-in. In this way, Facebook receives the information that you have visited our websites with your IP address. If you click on the Facebook “Like” button while you are logged in to your Facebook account, you can link the content of our websites to your Facebook profile. In this way, Facebook can attribute the visit to our websites to your user account. Please note that we do not obtain any knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or of its use by Facebook. Additional information about this can be found in Facebook’s Data Protection Declaration at WWW.FACEBOOK.COM/POLICY.PHP.
If you do not want Facebook to be able to attribute visits to our websites to your Facebook user account, please log out of your Facebook user account before visiting our website.
USE OF INSTAGRAM
On our Website, we place plug-ins of the social network Instagram, which is operated by Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. The plug-ins are indicated by an Instagram logo, for example, in the form of an Instagram camera. An overview of the Instagram plug-ins and their appearance can be found here: BLOG.INSTAGRAM.COM/POST/36222022872/INTRODUCING-INSTAGRAM-BADGES.
If you visit our website, your browser creates a direct connection with the Instagram servers. The content of the plug-in is transmitted by Instagram directly to your browser and integrated into the website. By way of this integration, Instagram receives the information that your browser has visited the corresponding page of our website even if you do not have an Instagram profile or you are not logged in. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to an Instagram server in the USA and stored there.
If you are logged in to Instagram, Instagram can attribute the visit to our website directly to your Instagram account. If you interact with the plug-in, for example, if you activate the “Instagram” button, this information will also be transmitted directly to an Instagram server and stored there. The information is also published in your Instagram account and shown to your contacts there.
The purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of data by Instagram as well as your rights and settings options associated with this for protecting your private sphere can be found in the data protection notices of Instagram: HELP.INSTAGRAM.COM/155833707900388.
USE OF PINTEREST
On our Website, we may place plug-ins of the social network Pinterest.com, a service of Pinterest, Inc., 808 Brannan Street, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. The plug-ins are indicated with a Pinterest logo, for example, as a “P” in the form of an ampersand and alternatively with the “Save” add-on in white lettering on a red emblem or rectangle. An overview of the Pinterest plug-ins can be found here: DEVELOPERS.PINTEREST.COM/DOCS/WIDGETS/SAVE.
With the integration of the plug-in on our page, the following personal data is sent to Pinterest: IP address and session ID, operating system used and statistical information as well as your browser’s identifier. The data is transmitted regardless of whether you have a user account with Pinterest, to which you are logged in.
If you are logged in, this data will be attributed directly to your account. If you do not want this attribution to your profile, you must log out before activating the button. Cookies for the collection and control of usage-based online advertising can be deactivated at WWW.YOURONLINECHOICES.COM.

We might transmit your personal data to companies and contractual partners outside of the EU/EEA for the provision of our services, the operation of the website, the handling of your order, the maintenance of our IT systems and software etc. However, such transmission does not change anything in our obligation to protect your personal data in accordance with this Data Protection Declaration. If your personal data is forwarded outside of the EU/EEA, we guarantee an adequate measure of security by forwarding them to countries that have an appropriate level of protection based on confirmation by the European Commission, or by concluding an appropriately formulated contract between us and the legal person outside of the EU/EEA who receives the data.
